Friends, although we had hopes of reopening this past fall, Kumbaya remains closed as the world experiences the second surge,
as warned by the authorities on contagious disease if we failed to adhere to safe and sound preventive practices.
As of Sunday, Sunday, December 13, 2020, there have been 72,400,912 cases of Covid reported world-wide, with the United
States leading in cases at 16,583,753 and over 305,00 deaths. The great iron is that all of Africa - the entire continent of
countries identified by TRump as "S-Hole" have less than 2,400,000 cases combined, and only 56,000 reported death. Who's
the toilet now, Mr. pResident? We thank God that your time as the so-called "leader of the free world" is over.
Welcome, welcome, welcome a new intelligent era of actual (not alternative) facts, and leadership that consults with and adheres
to the researches and prevention practitioners of contagious disease.
Continue to stay the course of safe social practices and distancing. Masks are more comfortable than ventilators. Do the work
for your own sake and for others. We want to live up to our moniker as a "place of peaceful pastime. That includes the peace of
mind that we can safely gather without worry of contacting or passing on the disease. Until that time, Kumbaya will remain
In the mean time, please take time to read our 2020 newsletters posted below, reflecting on Kumbaya events and significant
moments in our nation's history. If you would like to be on our newsletter mailing list please email me at
When this moment of trial passes, more than ever I will look forward to seeing you on the shore!
